Innovation News

Innovation News (iNews) is a project of the Open Publishing Lab (OPL) at the Rochester Institute of Technology. iNews is a virtually instantaneous, cross media newspaper platform to document live events.  iNews enables reporters and photographers to submit content from the field, giving editors the opportunity to quickly edit content for the web, and to flow it into XML based page layout programs.
